A smooth and wholesome Rioja for the everyday price of $12? Valserrano has delivered just that with this superpleasant, sophisticated wine that's just complex enough for Spain lovers but also simple enough for the masses who just want an excellent red wine. Raspberry, plum, cherry and spice are plentiful on the nose and palate, while the finish is both clean and cleansing, meaning it's flavorful and long, but also fresh enough to go with food.
